When a tooth has been knocked, chipped, or cracked, this is a critical dental emergency. Seeing a dentist as soon as possible after a tooth is knocked out is the only possibility of saving the tooth. Before getting to a dentist, there are some steps to take that can help. Without touching the root, gently place the tooth back in the socket. If this is not possible, keeping the tooth between tout gums and lips can help keep the tooth viable as well as placing the tooth in a glass of milk. If there is a lot of loss of blood or if it is potentially life-threatening, head to the ER as soon as possible.
Even if you have not visited Dental Care of Morristown previously, we are happy to help with any dental emergencies.
